How to Install Deadbolt Spade Connectors:
Spade connectors are a versatile alternative to banana plugs or wire crimps when setting up a modular home entertainment system. Easy to terminate and with a strong, clear connection, these spade connectors make any audio install a breeze.
Deployment is as simple as inserting your speaker wire, tightening down the crimping screws, and then plugging the connector into your audio devices. It couldn't be easier!
Fast-locking technology lets you quickly and easily terminate 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 gauge speaker wire without soldering, crimping, or using screws. Fast-Locking works by using self crimping teeth which securely lock the spade connector to the speaker wire.

Well constructed, reasonable price. I would purchase these again.
These plugs provided the secure strong connection to my speakers that I was looking for. My type of cable did not have quite as thick a jacket as desired so, I inserted a small amount of clear silicon gel at the base.
Well designed, easy to assemble, and smart looking. Spade is very robust. You're going to pull the contact out before the spade bends.
Much like the Monster versions at a better value given their price point. A must have for any serious audio enthusiasts for improvement of connections to source and speakers!
